  1. Excellent article! I couldn’t agree more with your assessment. I own one of these bikes now, and at 54 years young it’s a terrific all around bike. With a few minor upgrades (v-force 3 reeds, mild port and head work, some factory connection suspension magic an FMF pipe/silencer, and a clutch upgrade) this bike is an excellent do everything well bike! Handling and ride are phenomenal, power is more than adequate! And with a 10oz flywheel weight it’s a monster on the trails as well as a fun and potent track bike! Thanks for another great article Tony!

  2. I had a 97 RM250 that I raced GNCC with. I put a flywheel weight on it, had the suspension valved n sprung for me, I thought it was a great off-road bike. Only problem was it disintegrated after about 1 season. I was convinced the metallurgy Suzuki used was more cream cheese than steel
